Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and CrossWind have entered into a deal to supply the turbines for the 759 MW Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind park.
This involves the procurement of 69 SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbines and a 15-year service and maintenance deal.
Final requirements are expected to be completed in the coming months, turning the deal into a firm order for Siemens Gamesa. The Notice of Proceed was signed following the issuance of an irrevocable permit from the Dutch authorities to CrossWind in December 2020.
The Hollandse Kust Noord project is the third project of the Dutch National Offshore Wind Roadmap focused on non-subsidy tenders. As the first initiative for Siemens Gamesa with Shell, a joint venture partner, and the second offshore project with Eneco, a joint venture partner, the firms are keen to join together to build a wider future for renewable energy. The definitive investment decision has already been made by the parent companies of CrossWind, Shell and Eneco.
“As our first project with Shell and our second offshore project with Eneco, we’re extremely excited to grow our partnership with both companies through Hollandse Kust Noord. Siemens Gamesa is at forefront of delivering solutions that contribute to decarbonizing the power sector, and simultaneously aid in securing a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re happy to lend our expertise in offshore wind and help The Netherlands achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions from their energy supply by 2050. On an even more local level, the long-term Service agreement ensures direct economic benefits for years to come.”Marc Becker, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit.
“We are looking forward to continue this partnership to deliver the offshore wind park at Hollandse Kust Noord in The Netherlands. With contracts in place, final investment decision taken, and turbines instated with the latest technologies, we will be able to deliver clean energy by 2023.”Tjalling de Bruin, CEO, CrossWind.
